The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. announced it is launching three new sizes for its Fuel Max RTD (Regional Traction Drive) tire line. In the second quarter, all six Fuel Max RTD sizes will be available at original equipment (OE) and at Goodyear authorized dealers.
The Fuel Max RTD line currently is available in OE sizes 11R22.5 (Load Ranges G and H) and 255/70R22.5 (Load Range H). By the second quarter, the tire will be available in sizes 225/70R19.5 (Load Range G), 245/70R19.5 (Load Range H) and 295/75R22.5 (Load Range G), which is SmartWay-verified for sustainable transportation.
Designed to improve the operational efficiency of regional and urban trucking fleets, the Fuel Max RTD is designed to balance fuel efficiency with traction and long miles to removal. Compliant with Phase 2 Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards, the tire also contains a low-rolling-resistance compound and a Three-Peak Mountain Snowflake Certification for enhanced traction in all weather conditions.
Applications include straight trucks, day cabs, box trucks, heavy-duty pickups and utility vehicles.
